Hello from Japan - first impressions

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

we are alive! Don, Mochi, Kuraude and I are finally on our Japan-journey!
Right now day 4 is starting here in Japan. Today we are going to meet a friend of Kuraude at Shibuya station and we want to go shopping in Shibuya and Shinjuku <3.
Fortunately we do not had such a jet lag but the first two days in Japan were nevertheless pretty hard but we enjoy every minute here! <3

At the first day we strolled through Shibuya, we went f. e. into the Shibuya 109. On the next day then we actually planned to visit Minato and visit the German Embassy for translating Don's driver license and the Pokemon Center. We had some "problems"at the Embassy. We thought that the translation of the driver license would do in one day because the internet told us so but normally it would take up to 2-3 days. Fortunately the staff had made an exception for us and they told us that we can catch up the translation the next day. So we decided to visit the famous Takeshita Dori for shopping. Yesterday then we catched up the translated the driver license at the German Embassy and went to the Pokemon Center in Tokyo *___* The weather here is really hot hot hot!

Now enough of the words, here are some very first impressions of our stay in Japan

A dream comes true: Japan - we're coming!

Hello my cute mauw-mauws,

I could burst with excitement!
For me really a dream is going to come true. I worked towards this journey for such along time. It was always the No.1 motivation for keeping track, nevertheless how tough and/or shitty my days in the past were.

When traveling for such a long time, several things back home need to be arranged. For example I asked my mom to take care of my pet rats (I even prepared sort of profiles for each of my cuties for the purpose of (pre-existing) illness and characterics), moreover my mum will have a look at our flat and will look through our post. My parents take also care of my car.

What I also want to tell is that I will not blog that regularly within the next 3 weeks here. We will stay in Japan from 23rd of July (or better 24th of July) til 9th of August 2013. During our stay in Japan my friends and I want to write as often as we can about our experiences in Japan here:

Crazy in Japan 2013

Of course I will write afterwards in more detail about our japan trip here. <3

Some highlights for me during our journey will be f. e. Marui One (big shopping centre for alternative fashion), Sanrio Puroland (Themepark), Suzuka Circuit, Pokemon Center, Kinkaku-ji (golden temple in Kyoto).. and more...

Tomorrow our journey will finally start!!!!!!

Au revoir, Prospera!

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

during the last Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up, Prospera told us that she would move in a few weeks to Nottingham, United Kingdom.
Because Prospera couldn't attend the next Aix-La-Chapelle Meet-Up we'd short-dated an additional date so we can meet her once again and say "au revoir!".

Yesterday then we met up in Maastricht. We are finally got summer here and we had a picnic. <3

f. l. t. r. : I, RainyYuki, Kuraude, Buschwindroeschen and Prospera.

We had so much to eat and drink for the picnic - pure awesomeness <3 After we ate like hell it was time to give our presents to Prospera ^O^

from Buschwindroeschen

Halloween Make-Up / fake-blood from RainyYuki



from Kuraude


I gave to Prospera a photo(frame) and a black, lolita looking, mirror
We were really happy that Prospera liked our presents! <3
Besides, we were watched by many people and also animals that day.  We were sitting next to a little waterhole which was occupied by a lot of ducks and their hatchlings. Really cute. <3

Crazy Eyes Duck - He/She was our favourite
The ducks weren't that afraid of people and kept an eye on us. Even dragonflies came across and one of them seem to enjoy their place in the sun.. on my dress:



After having a picnic we decided to go to a nearby cafe because it was gettin really hot. Towards evening then we leaved Maastricht and Prospera. I guess we all enjoyed the day, we didn't took much photos but it was great to see the girls again, chatting, just sitting in the sun and enjoy life.<3
It was of course kind of sad to see Prospera probably for the last time again in the near future. p__q To be honest I think I do not realised yet that she won't attend the next Meet-Ups..

Prospera,
 I wish you the very best for your time in Nottingham, Im sure you'll get to know many nice people and I am really looking forward to see photos of you in Nottingham.

Happy 1st B*Day, Gabriel!

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

where has the time gone?
One year ago, at the 10th of July 2012, my lil nephew has come into the world (see: And suddenly I became an aunt). Time really flies. Yesterday we celebrated his 1st birthday greatly! ^O^


Gabriel looked as cute as always and this day he weared some special outfit: He wore an overall which my sister and me also used to wear as we were still babies. My mum preserved a few of our clothes really good. =) Everytime I see my lil nephew I also see my sister. He looks so much like my sister as she was in his age. It is really stunning. Sometimes he reminds me even at me as lil baby. We can really not deny that he is closely related with us.

Gabriel, of course, did not know really what was all going on yesterday, he just noticed that he get a lot of attention (even more than usual) and presents from that many people and he enjoyed it. Don, Kuraude and Mochi also joined Gabriels B*Day! My sister even ordered a special wafer paper with a photo of Gabriel for her tart and my mum made a colourful vegan cake:

yummy yummy - No. 1

yummy yummy - No. 2

my sister (Skullina), my mum and Gabriel <3

Don with a brand new haircut ;D

Mochi & Kuraude
Gabriel and his daddy 

Gabriel: "WTF?! A lilting candle?!" <3

Mochi even brought some new special item of him to the party: A kitschy figure of a dog, named Bernd, which he just bought for 0,10€.

Mochi proudly presents "Bernd"
Unfortunately Bernd didn't stayed for too long. We all thought that Bernd was some kind of soft toy and so we didn't shared a thought that we should move "Bernd" out of reach from Gabriel.. well, during we were all dining it happens what must happen:

..ups

RIP Bernd X'D
Mochi wasn't angry at him at all. It was a pretty funny moment and we all had to laugh =D
Afterwards we went outside again to enjoy the nice weather.

finally I've got a current photo of my sister and me (and of course Gabriel) 



It is amazing how fast babies are growing up, he learned so many things. I love hearing him baby talking. He is so mega cute. My sister and her boyfriend done a great job. ;-)

My Cosplays - 8th - Chii (Nurse Outfit) of Chobits

Hello my lovely mauw-mauws,

and here comes the 8th part of my "My Cosplays"-series. This time I want to show you my Chii (Nurse Outfit) of Chobits. ^___^




photo made by Mino


Chi Cosplay – Profile:
Cosplay No.:8
Created in: 2012
Costs: about 35€
Hours to make: 5h
Weared at: Connichi 2012 (Sunday)






Why do I wanted to cosplay Chii ?
Chobits is one of my favourite Mangas ever and Chii is my fave character. I instantly fall in love with her big, brown eyes, her long bright hair and her behavour so it was pretty sure that I would do a Cosplay of her again. I did her Black Bakery Outfit before.


I really loving her Nurse Outfit eventhough there isn't a picture of the dress/outfit as a whole so I could decide by myself about how long the dress should actually be. Unfortunately, I didn't managed it to finish the Cosplay for Connichi 2012 so you will see that some details of the outfit are still missing.
My mum, once again, supported me by creating the Cosplay as you can see here:

Any unforgettable experiences ?
Connichi 2012 (Sunday): The nice compliments I received during that day and afterwards is something I will not forget. =)
I am really looking forward to wear this Cosplay again.. <3
